Filming paused during COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Thai government had ordered a halt to all film production activities since March 2020 along with a vast array of other restrictions to daily life to curb the outbreak. These orders evidently had a negative impact of the livelihood of all participants in the 30 billion baht per-year industry.

Filming and Permits Application Resumed

Recently however, the situation in Thailand has drastically improved. Due to strict and decisive actually taken by the government and health officials, Thailand has been one of the least affected countries from COVID-19 in Southeast Asia and globally. On May 14th, 2020, Thailand recorded no new cases giving a clear indication that things are getting better.

The current regulations will lift the ban on film production from May 17th, 2020 onward. The government will allow crews of up-to 50 persons to be on-set. Filming will also not be limited to interior or exterior locations but there will be limitations on shooting scenes with close physical contact such as kissing, hugging or any sex scenes.
